Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

You should join the live FTF tournaments that are being hosted every month. Next up is the Liberty Cup: https://liberty-cup.com/2020-liberty-cup/ Why is the fashion for ftf tournaments on backstabbr of all places? Their map is hideous :sick: You are right.

New Commentary w/ Ezio - Nexus Season 4 Finals

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq7wVLsYjfg This one's a bit unusual, because we normally commentate blind, but I qualified for the Nexus Finals this year :D Ezio still went in blind and as such does the majority of the speculation, and I fill in details on the negotiation front and on how things we...

The only time I'd endorse a closed setup is if it's advertised as bastard and people signing up know it's going to be a gongshow.

The order tool permits an order of A(SAG) to BAL WITHOUT A CONVOY requirement.

will this go through?
That's an unfortunate quirk of the system. This move needs a convoy, otherwise it won't go through, regardless of what the order tool says.

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

The tournament is currently ongoing; you can only join through the tournament page before it starts. If you send goldfinger0303 a PM he might put you on the substitute list but you'll probably be better off waiting for another one, since this one is in the last round now :)

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

The Challonge has been fully fixed, and the next matchups determined! Things to note: Foxcastle has won the Group B tiebreaker by dint of a tie being awarded to France, which I have not represented on the Challonge in terms of points but is represented by Foxcastle progressing to the next round. Mhs...

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

All games have indeed concluded! I'm updating the challonge bracket now but it might take a little while, I need to re-enter most of the earlier matches since I changed the way the scoring works in the settings.

Re: How much do I need to donate to get webdip points?

24 point bet = pot of 168

eliminate one player then draw

168/6 = 28

profit = 28-24 = 4

In the 2018 edition, im pretty sure each player fought for 18 points, what a quick research confirmed.
Huh, I stand corrected. I completely missed the extra column on the page.

I'm going to go see if I can figure out how to correct this on this year's Challonge.

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

I'm using Riot's original ruleset for this with some modifications, but for the most part keeping it the same. Group stage scoring is something I didn't change, and you can check previous Challonges to see that it was handled the same way there. Within these groups, each player will play the other t...

Last time, yes. Now, no... When I click on your webDip profile it still says: "Banned by a moderator: multi/meta/no reply" I assume that simply hasn’t been updated since you say you are in the clear, good look in the tourney, will be fun to see how everyone does!

Re: Will you be my friend?

Given the amount of interest here, I've left the game again - I think what with mod stuff and tournament running the spot would be better going to someone who has more free time to ensure a quality game :D

But I'll be watching on with interest. And welcome back Abge!

Go on a walk every day and only buy healthy food. I've only been going grocery shopping only once every 3 weeks. Can't snack if there are no snacks. How is that even possible?

Re: 1v1 Puzzles

Now in video form!

This particular puzzle impressed me a hell of a lot so I asked RJ if I could put it up on my youtube channel. I'd strongly recommend you try both this one and his puzzle 6 here, both of them have really solid and interesting answers!
